Cats and Dogs

The theme at Less is More this week is Cats and Dogs...what fun!
This little chap is from Penny Black, coloured with Copics, with a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.
Another simple card! The cats were a stamp which I bought many moons ago on eBay, it needs to be stuck onto an acrylic block with a Pritt Stick, but works well enough.
The mounting is from Stamping Up and the sentiment from There She Goes clear stamps.
I'm adding this to the ABC challenge of Wedding or Anniversaries
As you may tell from these cards, I'm more of a cat person than a doggy one, this one is mainly die cuts from Memory Box. Sentiment from Paper Smooches.
There's a version of this one without the watermark, (which obliterates the sentiment) on the Less is More blog. I doctored a Paper Smooches sentiment stamp to create this one... details are on the LIM blog.

Here he is again!
This is Magnum, I love this fun cat... not a lot of white space on this one, but a plainish backdrop!
The sentiment is computer generated in Fabulous 50's.
I've been having lots of my trouble with my laptop playing silly kids and going slowly or completely refusing to operate at all. Sadly sorting these kind of problems is not my forte, but I'm just grateful that it has decided to operate again... I don't know if it was because of anything that I did or didn't do, but long may it last!
Have a great weekend.
